That's still confusing.  Why should I consider that?  A user already
knowing the difference may think "why is there such a (new!) warning?
Did they change the implementation?  Is there something important I have
forgotten, or something new I don't know about?

I would prefer a sentence like

"Did you mean `make-local-variable'?"

which is short and just says: I, Emacs, think you confused those two,
but it's ok if you know what you're doing.


Michael.
